We arrived before the check in time of 3:00. We were given a room even though it was early and told if we wanted to wait until 3:00 we would be given a bigger one. We elected to wait. The hotel took our luggage and we went to lunch. We came back at 3:00 and our room was ready. The... More

A well placed hotel, very close to Union Square so easy to get to on the BART from the airport. The room, and bathroom in particular, was a bit small and dated, but clean and functional. Hotel staff were very helpful and the breakfasts next door at by the daily grill were excellent.

Arrived at the Handlery after a long days travelling from the UK. Had booked 2 doubles despite having an awkward party number of 3 adults, reception offered us a bigger room with 2 twins and a camp bed. This suited fine and it was much appreciated to be given the option. The door staff were more than willing to take... More

This hotel is located in a great place, next to Union Square. There were so many advantages - Macy's discounts and the best was the postcards to send to friends & family. Not many hotels offer the postcards - what a great idea. The room was clean and large for a SF hotel room. This boutique hotel offered professional staff,... More

If you are looking for a place to crash in a good location than this hotel will suffice. The rooms are extremely tiny but clean. The rooms are also warm and we were unable to adjust the temperature to our liking. The staff are courteous.

A good hotel in an ideal location. We had a Premier Room on the second floor with the pool right outside the front windows/doors – ideal. There was no noise at night. Hotel offers free Wi-Fi facility in the rooms. Staff were excellent, special mention to Dale Humphrey & John Wood the two gentlemen at the concierge desk, nothing was... More

Great location, room a bit tired ...... Lovely dining room, waiter service breakfast - using real cutlery and plates .... Nice ambience about the place. Nice staff. Can recommend Lori's Diner - just around the corner. Very close to major shops. Central location made it easy to get to Fisherman's Wharf etc.

A great hotel with lots of character, ideally situated in Union Square. This was our third trip to San Francisco and this time the sun was shining all the time - it made such a difference! We shopped, we walked, we ate, we cycled over the GG Bridge, we visited Alcatraz, we walked down Lombard St, we loved Sausalito and... More

We booked through Priceline and had never heard of this hotel before, but it will be our first choice in San Francisco in the future. Classy without being stuffy, the Handlery Union Square is located in the heart of everything! Staff was wonderful, with the concierge offering great restaurant recommendations. Upon arrival we upgraded to a room with a king... More

Loved this hotel! Spacious, beautifully furnished room with very comfortable bed. Small elevators and hallways. Very happy with location. BART is within walking distance. We walked to the wharf from the hotel. It was a little further than we anticipated but it was a great way to experience the city instead of flying past it in a vehicle. Having said... More
